October 22, 2017

Ah, the dreaded Tupperware drawer. Doesn’t every house have one?

Yeah, that drawer. Well, here are a few tips to tame the wild beast.

1. Find a few brands of food storage containers you like. Do you want something sturdy and..

Eat breakfast pizza, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

October 15, 2017

Breakfast pizza. It takes all the best parts of breakfast and combines them into the shape of a pizza: hash brown crust, layered with cheese and eggs and meat. How can you go wrong? If one can eat cheese pizza for breakfast, why not breakfast pizza for dinner? Here's how to make one at home.

Ingredients

1 pound bag frozen shredded potatoes, thawed

1 onion, chopped

6 eggs

1 cup cheese or cheese blend of your choice

Get serious about homemade soup. Buy yourself an immersion blender.

October 1, 2017

Immersion blenders are one of those funny kitchen tools that, if you have one, you love it, but rarely do people think “you know what I really need? An immersion blender.” But here’s the thing: there are a few times when you do really need an immersion blender. Even if you only pull it out of the cupboard four times a year, it’s well worth the $30 you'll spend on one. And I guarantee you’ll use it more than four times a year.

Immersion blenders..

How to fry bacon without making a mess

September 16, 2017

Like pretty much every self-aware millennial, I’m a big fan of bacon. Salty, crisp, and meaty it’s pretty much everything I want in a protein. And, while I draw the line at things like bacon-infused bourbon, there are very few savoury dishes that don’t benefit from the inclusion of a little — or a lot — of cured pork.

 

My love for bacon is, however, tempered somewhat by the absolute hatred I have for having to wipe up all the grease and grime..

Why I love wooden spoons in the kitchen

August 31, 2017

Wooden spoons are old school. They're what our grandmothers and our grandmother's grandmothers used. And they're still around today because, well, they just work. There are all kinds of fancy spoons on the market these days — slotted plastic spoons, silicone spoons, spoons that scrape, and spoons that sift. But I always come back to my wooden spoons. They're simple and they get the job done.

Wooden spoons have been around for thousands of..

The cookie recipe you've always wanted

August 6, 2017

I love cookies. It doesn't matter if they're snickerdoodles or gingersnaps or chocolate chip, cookies are delectable. The recipe I'm sharing with you today is one I grew up baking. It was a close second to my mother's Congo Bars. When I was in high school, my friends and I named this cookie "DCMCOCDSMBM" or "Double Chocolate Mint Chip Oatmeal Cookies Dipped in Sugar Made By Mom". But I think you could just call these Mint Chocolate Oatmeal..

Forget baking. Try pies in the freezer.

July 29, 2017

Pies are a delicious blend of crust and filling, and there are so many variations, you can find a pie for any taste. But when the sun is out and the humidity is rising, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven and bake a pie. So what to do? You make a frozen pie, and eat it happily. Or take it to a friend's house and share.

Here are two recipes for frozen pies I love. The first is a recipe handed down from my grandmother. The second was..

The only spatula (turner) you need in your kitchen

July 23, 2017

I have a container on my counter dedicated to holding all my cooking utensils. Serving spoons, wooden mixing spoons, rubber scrapers, tongs, ladels, whisks: you name it, I've probably got it somewhere in the pile. And if that wasn't enough, I have a whole other drawer dedicated to holding the utensils that don't fit in the container. Honestly, that's way too many utensils for cooking.

In that pile of cooking utensils, I have at least 5 spatulas..
